The National Development Council is pleased to announce that the dates of the NDC Academy 2015 will be May 12-14, 2015 in Washington, DC.

With over 400 community development practitioners in attendance, NDC Academy 2013 was our best yet, and 2015 promises to be better!  Development finance programs are under attack in Washington and NDC Academy 2015 will bring together state and local officials, public and private policy makers and elected officials to better understand, utilize and advocate for critical tools like New Markets Tax Credits, Low-Income Housing Tax Credits, HUD 108 loan guarantees and more. NDC Academy 2015 will focus on how these program not only produce benefits to the communities where they are employed, but ultimately, by creating quality, long-lasting jobs, produce enough local, state and federal tax revenue to more than offset their costs.

The NDC Academy’s unique structure allows for a synergistic flow between attendees and government officials. We combine in-depth training for practitioners, indispensable networking events and a forum for attendees to have a voice on Capitol Hill. And again in 2015, our Project Awards Showcase will celebrate the important and innovative community development projects from our colleagues across the country, and introduce Academy participants to the deal-doers themselves.
